Fabrication of metal specialties (galvanized, stainless steel, aluminum, pre-finished materials). Heat-loss / heat-gain calculation (identifies the correct heating and cooling equipment capacity). Exhaust systems. Summer ventilation for warehouses and manufacturing facilities. Review existing buildings on blue-prints for code compliance. Fire damper inspection. Develop computerized drawings (CAD) of HVAC systems. Replace old or outdated equipment. Review building blue-prints or perform a building survey to identify the layout of your duct systems. Design build or plan and spec projects Sensitive to operating according to the needs of our customers.
At the beginning of your project, we will ask many questions to identify what your needs are. We will ask questions about your operations, what has worked well for you in the past, what has not worked and the end results you need once the project is complete.
A load analysis will be performed to identify the equipment capacity required for your building. The building’s insulation, windows, the number of people who occupy the space, lighting and building exhaust will all be taken into consideration when sizing your “comfort system”.
At the beginning of each project, we create a project manual for our installation crew to use as a guide. The manual includes catalogue cuts of each component to be installed, specifications on the ductwork required, a list of equipment descriptions and areas served by each, possible safety concerns and a detailed list of tasks to be completed.
Pre Construction Review Meetings
A meeting is conducted with the lead technician, field superintendent and the salesman before every project. During this meeting the project manual is thoroughly reviewed.
All aspects of the project are reviewed to give the installers the information they need to complete the project.
Post Project Inspections
The field superintendent will use the post-job checklist in the project manual to inspect the project once it is complete. He will be looking for unfinished tasks and left over materials and equipment that may not have been removed from the job.
Maintenance and Operation Manuals
At the end of each project, a bound manual will be presented to you, the customer. This manual will include the installation instructions, parts lists, and the owner’s guide to operating the equipment.
Start Up Sheets
As part of the commissioning of your new equipment, we use a “start up” form that asks for temperature readings, system pressures, and electrical amp draw on each piece of equipment installed. Checking that these numbers are within the required range ensures the equipment is running correctly when we finish the project and gives us a benchmark should problems occur in the future.
Record drawings are available upon request. These drawing will reflect the original project scope and any changes that are required during the construction process.
Your project documents will be retained for a period of no less than 5 years from the date of completion. Should you need information or drawings that were part of your project, we can, in most cases, reproduce them for you.
Benefits of Maintenance
Most people have their car tuned up and the oil changed on a regular basis to increase gas mileage and reduce costly repairs. The same holds true for your heating and cooling systems. Here are some facts from national studies of how having proper maintenance performed on your heating and cooling system will increase your energy savings and equipment reliability.
A dirty condenser coil can increase operating pressure from 50 PSI to 100 PSI and will increase energy usage by 10% to 20%. An improperly maintenance air conditioner can increase electrical cost by up to 30%. An indoor cooling coil with 1/100th of an inch of dirt will increase cooling bills by 5%. Properly performed maintenance to your gas furnace can increase efficiency from 5% to 20%. A properly trained service technician can check all safety controls and operation of the equipment to find any potential safety or repair problems. Service technicians say that having proper maintenance performed could prevent 70% to 95% of all repairs they perform. Heating and cooling equipment life can be extended by 20% to 30% by having proper maintenance performed. You can count on lower utility bills, longer life and reliability from your heating and cooling system and safer operation by having your heating and cooling system properly maintained. Standard can design a maintenance agreement that will provide the level of service you need. Whether your equipment requires monthly filter changes or just yearly clean and checks, Standard Heating and Cooling can customize a maintenance agreement for your business. We can also provide flexibility in payment plans.
